Melasma

Melasma is a common skin condition characterised by brown or blue-gray patches of discolouration that is often symmetrical. This hyperpigmentation is caused by overactive melanocytes deeper in the dermis and deeper than that of sun damage. It is often related to pregnancy, the contraceptive pill and hormonal medication due to the increased levels of estrogen. 

There are two types of melasma: dermal and epidermal. At consultation your skin will be assessed to identify which category your pigmentation falls into, and then a treatment plan will be recommended.

Unfortunately Melasma cannot be treated using IPL as this could result in further hyperpigmentation.

We do however offer other treatments that can help to fade it including Skin Peels, Microneedling and LED Light Therapy.
Medical grade skincare will also be recommended.
